She recalled that Lewis Hamilton also participates in Formula One competitions: “Can’t he call Jürgen Klopp and say ‘hey is everything alright?’ (Laughs). Let him call and say how wonderful it is in Baku. In reality, this is ridiculous and strange to me. How can I miss the purely English final? Of course they will come. The same was at the World Championships in Russia in 2018, but the British came and were delighted. They will say the same about Baku”.
